1 – What is a cookie or tracker?
“Cookies” and local storage are small files containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer’s browser and stored on your device hard drive when you visit a website.
They can be used for a wide range of purposes, for example, to identify your computer’s previous visits to the site, and to detect the most popular features of the site, so that we can give you a personalised browsing experience.
This may include HTTP cookies as well as other technologies such as local shared objects, local storage, device fingerprinting, identifiers generated by operating systems (IDFA, IDFV, Android ID, etc.), hardware IDs (MAC address, serial number, etc.), etc.
A cookie session only lasts for the time you are on the site. When you close or quit your browser, it will automatically end the cookie session. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent; however, if you reject cookies, you will not be able to sign-in to the services or take full advantage of our services. Additionally, if you clear all cookies on your browser at any point after setting your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent, you will have to again reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.
